Condo Blues: Blitzkrieg’s Balloon Boy Costume!

Blitzkrieg’s Balloon Boy Costume!

Blitzkrieg needed a costume for the Capital Area Human Society’s Halloween Pet Parade but what do you do if you dog hates costumes?

Hmmmm…Think. Think. Think.

After watching way too much of the evening news. I got it!

It’s timely.

It’s twisted.

It’s recycled!

I gathered my materials…

Photobucket


…and used them to create this. A dog Balloon Boy costume!

I played with Photobucket to make Blitzkrieg's costume stand out in the foreground of these photos since there's so much going on visually in the background.

Husband held the balloon in the parade and I pulled Blitzkrieg in the box I attached to his wheeled carrier.

"It’s for the show”
Blitzkrieg's Balloon Boy costume was a hit. We helped raise money for one of our favorite charities and Blitzkrieg earned some noms doing it. High fives and tail wags all the way around.

This post is part of  Reinvented's Trash to Treasure Tuesday and A Soft Place to Land's DIY Day.

  11. I...love....this....so much. I can't even tell you how happy this made me! I've been so busy with everything and then Brett was like, "Did you see Lisa put a link of Blitzkrieg's balloon boy costume?" and I was like, "I have to go look at that right now. Right now!!"

    I am so glad that I did. I am showing everyone. You are so clever. Who would've thought you could make that costume for your dog?!?!

    I love it.
